South Africa unlikely to sort out its debt in four years – Fitch.

June 26, 2020

We view the government’s forecast of gross loan debt rising to 81.8% of GDP in FY21, much higher than the 65.6% in the original budget, as realistic. However, we believe its expectation that debt will peak at 87.4% in FY24 is optimistic. This would require sufficient fiscal consolidation to achieve a primary budget surplus in that year, which would be South Africa’s first since 2008, towards the end of the commodity boom.
